Eastern Oregon University offers new MFA concentration focused on Wilderness, Ecology, and Community

A year ago we began compiling a list of writing programs with a focus on the environment and animals.

The latest addition to the list is EOU’s new low-residency MFA program:

Eastern Oregon University is pleased to announce the launch of a new low-residency writing MFA with a concentration in Wilderness, Ecology, and Community (WEC). Please help us advertise this opportunity to your students and recent graduates. In addition to ongoing online learning during the academic year, at the heart of the program are two summer residencies that entail a week at the Fishtrap Writers’ Conference followed by, in alternate years, a week backpacking in the Wallowa Mountains or studying sustainability and writing in a Northwest urban center. The application deadline for our first cohort is March 29, 2021.
